Time to put the costumes away until next year — Halloween is over. But that doesn't mean we can't relive the fun! This year the spooky holiday fell midweek, so many of us had several days of celebrating, and celebrities were no different. From weekend soirees to Oct. 31 events, the stars were out in costumed full force all over. We've loved all the creative couples costumes donned by famous best friends, marrieds, and everything in between. See some of our other favorite celebrity couples costumes from the weekend now!
According to Google, the top Halloween costumes for women include political memes, strong female heroines, and a pint-size reality TV star. What's missing from the list, interestingly, is sexy corn and sexy baby . . . could we — pretty please — be in the final days of the "sexy" Halloween costume era? It's possible, as "sexy Halloween costume" searches are on the decline with Yahoo! searches down 47 percent since 2010 and Google searches down more than 50 percent since 2008. But maybe everyone just knows that when you search for a costume, the sexy versions will inevitably show up? Either way, we're happy to see this year's hot costumes have more girl power than slutty power. See the top six costumes for women now!
For us here at FabSugar, Halloween is a time to get creative and think outside of the costume-in-a-bag looks you typically see about town . . . which is why our Fashion Reporter Allison McNamara and our Associate Producer Lauren Sofair went to Jet Rag to put together some really innovative costumes for Halloween this year. They took inspiration from dramatic movie characters, including Maleficent, Queen Ravenna from Snow White and the Huntsman, and Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby. Come play dress-up with us in today's Currently Trending. On Allison: Line and Dot top, Habitual jeans. On Lauren: BCBGeneration, J Brand jeans.
Instead of purchasing an expensive Halloween costume this year, we suggest you stretch out those DIY fingers and make your own. To help you get inspired, we teamed up with Holy Tee designer Michelle Zacks — purveyor of the most incredibly soft tees, skirts, and dresses you can imagine — to make our very own mummy costume out of, you guessed it, t-shirts. Not only was it super easy to put together, the results, as you can see, were amazing. All you need are a bunch of old tees or a t-shirt pack, a ruler, scissors, camisole, and leggings or biker shorts, depending on how much coverage you want. We used a white tee for our DIY, but you can always opt for black tees or stain your white t-shirts with fake blood or dirt to mix things up. Ready to make your very own mummy for Halloween?

We love all things vintage here at TrèsSugar, so some of our favorite Halloween costumes are throwbacks to decades past. And this year it's easier than ever to get in on any decade's pop culture with an outfit harkening back to eras like the roarin' '20s and swingin' '60s. There's a movie about Alfred Hitchcock in the works, period TV shows Downton Abbey and Mad Men are as hot as ever, and Marilyn Monroe is having a resurgence thanks to films like My Week With Marilyn and the show Smash. If you're looking for an easy retro Halloween costume this Oct. 31, we've rounded up vintage (and vintage-inspired) dresses and attire from Etsy. Each requires little more than a wig and some accessories to pull off pop culture women and characters from the Renaissance to the '80s. Ready for some time travel?
